Sixpence None The Richer – Brighten My Heart lyrics

My heart is as dark as the soil sodden with winter rains
My soul is as heavy as the peat freshly dug from the bog
My thoughts swirl like willow branches caught in autumn winds
My body is as tense as a cat's as it stalks it's prey

Chorus
Help me open my heart to You,
Help me open my heart to You,
Help me open my heart to You, oh Jesus
It's what I long to do

Ooh, to do
Ooh

My heart is as dark as the soil sodden with winter rains
(Lord, brighten my heart)
My soul is as heavy as the peat freshly dug from the bog
(Lord, lighten my soul)
My thoughts swirl like willow branches caught in autumn winds
(Lord, still my thoughts)
My body is as tense as a cat's as it stalks it's prey
(Lord relax my body)

Chorus
Help me open my heart to You,
(help me open my heart to You)
Help me open my heart to You,
(help me open my heart to You)
Help me open my heart to You, oh Jesus
It's what I long to do

Ooh, to do
Ooh

Instrumental

Help me open my heart to You,
(help me open my heart to You)
Help me open my heart to You,
(help me open my heart to You)
Help me open my heart to You, sweet Jesus

I...

(help me open my heart to You)
I want to open my heart to You,
(help me open my heart to You)
I want to open my heart to You
(help me open my heart to You)
I want to open my heart to You, oh Jesus
It's what I long to do

Ooh, to do x3
Ooh
